According to Ted Bauman, most people care about tax because it helps them reduce their disposable income. However, taxes have become so high in the recent few years for middle income earners, thanks to the resurgence of credit markets controlled by few rich Americans Bauman argues that the availability of cheap credit artificially inflates the price of education, housing and other basic commodities. And since the US economy is majorly based on debts, people have to part with a lot of money to pay for these basic commodities plus the taxes that come with them.
But why is the economy so debt-based? According to Bauman, the high number of debts witnessed in the economy is due to the income and wealth inequality that has plagued the country for many years. The rich have taken over the economy and are currently exercising their financial muscle in the consumer lending market. This has created a scenario where the prices of basic commodities increase relative to the rate of lending on crunchbase.com. And since higher prices of leads to more borrowing, the cycle continues. This in turn increases the amount of taxes on basic commodities.
